vegan chocolate chip muffins

There’s nothing like a delicious vegan chocolate chip muffin to kick off your day! Or for a mid-day snack…or for a bed time snack.

To be honest I think muffins are great to eat at all times of the day! I made a batch of this and they were gone within 2 days. They’re moist and soft on the inside, nice a crisp on top, and filled with chocolatey goodness! What more could you ask for in a muffin? These vegan chocolate chip muffins also happen to be gluten-free, high in protein and 100% clean eating approved!

These muffins also freeze really well, so you can make a batch ahead of time, and pop some in your freezer to store for a later day!
